AFM cantilever white noise CGI

AFM cantilever white noise CGI

A cantilever measures atomic forces coming from proteins interacting under an atomic force microscope. Georgia Tech engineers have significantly improved the device's sensitivity by adding electronic white noise, allowing the device to measure interactions from further away, thus avoiding touching biomolecules.
